Our brand new, bespoke storytelling chair in the Woodland Walk at the Alan Shearer Centre couldn’t have got off to a better start when it took pride of place for a Roald Dahl storytelling session.
Our Recreation Assistant, Pauline, took on the role of magical storyteller as our young guests gathered round on matching leaf-shaped seats to listen to her read Dahl’s Dirty Beasts.
“The whole experience was great for the children,” said Pauline. “The little path winding through the woods to the giant chair surrounded by wooden leaf stools all added to the magic.”
We hold regular themed activities for our members and their guests at the Alan Shearer Activity Centre. Keep an eye on our website for details or give our friendly Recreation Assistants a ring on 0191 2678128.
